The Buying Process

Choose Wisely
These words never ring truer than when you make a big decision…like buying a home.

The good news is that you’ve already made an important choice in buying your home by finding us here at Motive.

We eat, sleep and breathe the DFW housing market, keeping up-to-date on trending and emerging neighborhoods. And guide you away from the areas that are heading in the opposite direction.

John and his team have guided countless buyers through the home buying process and, while they are experts in their own right, they also have relationships with mortgage lenders, financial planners, home inspectors, builders, contractors, landscapers, movers and any other .

At Motive, we know that buying a home takes time…sometimes A LOT of time, so we make sure to understand all your needs BEFORE we start looking for your ideal home. As part of the discovery process with you, we also thoroughly research the housing market and other contributing factors to ensure you are making a wise decision.

At Motive, not only are we experts at negotiating on your behalf, but we have a ton of knowledge and experience to back it up. You can trust us to act with your best interests in mind.

Buying a home is a huge decision and one misstep could make all the difference in getting the home you want or getting into a home that leads to financial trouble down the road.

John and his team at Motive know how stressful buying a home can be, first time buyer or not, and will make sure you have all the information you need to make the best choice on your next home.

Buyer Agency

Is it Worth the Risk?

Does it pay to represent yourself as a buyer?

The short answer is no.

Despite what you may have heard, you won’t save money or get a better deal by not using a Buyer Agent. In fact, you really won’t be doing yourself any favors, except creating a giant headache for yourself.

Choosing Motive as your Buyer Agent gives you access to premium home search tools & technology, in-depth market knowledge, a network of valuable outside service providers and, MOST IMPORTANTLY:

You’ll have a dedicated agent working specifically for YOUR BEST INTERESTS.

Large real estate corporations may make this claim, but they have other people to answer to – like investors.

We’re small and we focus all of our efforts on finding the perfect home for you. We won’t treat you like another transaction.

Our current and future success depends on you…and we don’t take that lightly. Our sole focus is helping you get the home you want while taking on the hard stuff, like working with lenders, scheduling home viewings, negotiating with seller agents, and poring through piles of paperwork.

In fact, nothing exemplifies our desire to help others more than our Giving Back Program. When you buy your home with Motive, we’ll give a home to a family in need on your behalf. Learn more about this one-of-a-kind program here.

We’re not your average real estate group so don’t expect an average experience.

First Time Buyers

Ready to Take the Plunge?

Let Motive be your Life Jacket.

Congratulations! You’ve decided to buy your first home. Now what???

If you’re like most first time buyers, you’ve likely just scratched the surface of the process – searched for houses online, looked at some pictures, home prices and maybe even researched neighborhoods.

You’re also wondering how much house you can afford, what your best financing options are, if you’re making a good investment, how the closing process works, etc.

Well now would be the perfect time to pick up the phone and call the Motive team. No obligations. Just great advice from good people.

We take special care to educate first time buyers on all the factors that contribute to buying a home. We’ll walk you through the entire process and translate confusing real-estate and legal terms into language you can easily understand.

We know exactly what to look for when searching for homes – things first time buyers might overlook. It’s easy to fall in love with a home and turn a blind eye to potential problem areas. We’ll be there to bring you back down to earth and give you the big picture.

We’ve worked with many satisfied first time buyers andhere’s what some of them have to say:

And when you work with Motive to buy your first home, our one of a kind Giving Program will provide a first home for a family in need.

New Construction

Building Your Dream Home

Are you built for the custom home experience?

We’ll help you find that out as well as advise you on your different options for custom homes. They can range from completely custom where you make all of the decisions to semi-custom where you’ll have a limited set of options to choose from.

Either way, you’ll need experience on your side… and that’s exactly what you’ll get when you work with us.

Prior to founding Motive, I worked for several years on the development side gaining valuable knowledge of the home building process. I put that to work for you when you build your custom home and help you make educated decisions on your home design choices.

Additionally, I have built relationships with several DFW home builders, architects and designers who can execute your vision and create your ultimate dream home.

Give us a call today and take advantage of our valuable insight. With so many variables in the homebuilding process you’re likely to overlook something important.
